EltaMD Barrier Renewal Complex
EltaMD Barrier Renewal Complex is clinically proven* to moisturize the stratum corneum and improve dry, compromised skin after a single application within 24 hours. This advanced formula works to visibly minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles while significantly improving skin texture, tone and pore size.
Squalane: Naturally-occurring lipid derived from olives protects against moisture loss, makes skin more elastic and pliant, thereby improving the barrier structure of the natural lipid film.
Biotin: Enhances the overall organizational structure of the skin, increases flexibility and smoothness of skin by promoting the synthesis of lipids.
Ceramides – Ceramide NP, Ceramide NS, Ceramide EOS, Ceramide EOP, Ceramide AP: Provides protection by correction and repair of membrane defects of the stratum corneum lipid barrier. Increases the water transport mechanism known as aquaporin-3, amplifying hydration.
Tocopherol: Natural form of vitamin E with excellent bioavailability to the skin. Lipid soluble, potent antioxidant reduces free radicals to help diminish visible signs of aging.
Caprooyl Phytosphingosine, Caprooyl Sphingosine: Unique short-chain ceramides that function as signaling sphingolipids for keratinocyte differentiation. This leads to strengthening, densifying and smoothing effects of the stratum corneum.
Enzymes – Ficin, Actinidin, Bromelain: Proteolytic enzyme blend minimizes inflammation and soothes dry, itchy and compromised skin.
